In Russia, a wheelchair driven by sight  High technologies are designed not only to facilitate our life, but also to improve its quality in people with disabilities. Domestic scientists on the basis of the research center "Kurchatov Institute" have developed a wheelchair of a new generation: it will enable its owner to control the movement of the device by looking or simply reading the signals of the brain.
The stroller is equipped with devices for recording the direction of view, as well as electrodes for reading brain activity. What is noteworthy, the youngest scientists actively participated in the development of the device. As an employee of the Department of Neurocognitive Technologies of the Kurchatov Institute Vadim Ushakov,
"For children with engineering abilities it was quite an interesting task. Participants of our project shift at the educational center in Sochi "Sirius" paid a lot of time to this. The ideas that emerged during the development seemed to us quite interesting. We would like to improve this prototype and provide it with a mass of various functions to launch the most perfect product on the market. "
The device itself works as follows: a display is displayed in front of the user, to which the necessary commands are output. To activate the desired one, you just need to look at it. Another method of control involves the use of a special helmet with electrodes. In this case, the screen will not be needed and the user will be able to control the wheelchair by the power of thought.
